Piazza IV NovembreSesto Fiorentino
It needs to regain its vocation as a social node, a place characterized previously as a space void of "superstructure" able to accommodate multiple activities of community life. Instead it is fragmented and rendered almost impassable by a crowded network of walls, flower beds, terraces, oblique paths and elevated platforms where it is unable to perceive and use it as a square.
Photography & Project by Spira SrlThe design recalls the situation prior to the 70s: a space substantially "free" characterized by the prevalence of its length, conserving only the trees from the current conformation. In this regard, while retaining most of the lime trees (Tilia).
Photography & Project by Spira SrlThe project proposes a space that returns to being a public "square", a the place of encounter, Iinteraction, events for all ages, young and old, whose identity is expressed in confirmation of its elongated the spatial volume, like the original design.
- The present structure of Piazza IV Novembre is the indigestible result of 1970s "street furniture" that has conditioned its use as a public space, denying its importance as a place for commerce, recreation, entertainment and as the natural expansion of the city center.
